For a geek, all that is required to keep him busy and happy, is a group of other geeks working on the same problem trying to figure out some answer. How many times were you frustrated while looking out for a good collection of programming/algorithm/interview questions? What did you expect and what did you get? This is where GeeksforGeeks comes into picture - A computer science portal for geeks, by geeks. was created with a goal in mind to provide well written, well thought and well explained solutions for selected questions. The core team of five super geeks constituting of technology lovers and computer science enthusiasts have been constantly working in this direction .

The content on GeeksforGeeks has been divided into various categories to make it easily accessible for the users.
